Werewolves Within is a new virtual reality game from Ubisoft's Red Storm Entertainment designed to capture the essence and competitive spirit of playing live around a table with friends.
Coming to major VR platforms this autumn, Werewolves Within transports players to the medieval village of Gallowston, where they must uncover the werewolves that have been terrorising the townsfolk.
The game is played online by five to eight players, each randomly assigned roles at the beginning of the game. Some players will be granted special abilities that will help them deduce who is a werewolf in disguise.
Positional tracking and animations based on voice inflection analysis promise to bring players' real life actions and body language to life through their VR character.
"VR is proving to be an amazing platform for social interaction, moving toward truly feeling like you are there with other people," said David Votypka, Sr. Creative Director at Red Storm Entertainment. "Werewolves Within gives players a taste of how VR can generate strong social connections, allowing you to get together to have a great time with others no matter how near or far they are."
